'Stay Safe in 5' Video Series
The Atlanta REALTORS® Association (ARA), in conjunction with the National Association of REALTORS® (NAR) are proud to present a new video series, 'Stay Safe in 5.' Realtors® often find themselves in vulnerable situations that can leave them open to attack… think open houses or meeting clients at vacant homes. ARA works throughout the year to promote resources created through NAR that help agents deter predators and avoid dangerous situations. Even when these evasive techniques are utilized by agents, there is still a potential that they may find themselves in a life-threatening situation. This series aims to educate real estate agents on tactical maneuvers to use, if the unthinkable should happen!
ARA applied to receive a grant through NAR to help us raise members' awareness of the risks associated with the real estate industry. We know that agents are busy professionals and often do not take the time to go through the vast resources and attend educational opportunities created to keep them safe. We partnered with a two local detectives, Captain Ken Malcom and Captain Philip Bradford, who teach Safety courses through our school, the Capitus Real Estate Learning Center to develop a series of brief videos that could save your life!
